Need Help - CJKV Asian Chracters

Post by Yaswanth » Sat Jan 22, 2011 7:00 am

Could you help us, there is any way to create double byte bitmap fonts (.FNT) for CJKV Asian characters.
It appears that .FNT supports only 0-255 Single byte code points.
Can we open existing .FNT file in HighLogic FontCreator software, add more bitmaps mapping to double byte hex code points.
Otherwise can I create new bitmap fonts mappped to unicodes/double-byte-codepoints, save as a new TTF/OTF font in font creator, and then finally add these .TTF bitmaps glyphs to existing .FNT file.
Please suggest what information I should gather in this regard. Thanks in advance!

FontCreator doesn't support bitmap fonts — only Truetype or OpenType vector fonts.
